About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This restored farm house has been in the family since it was built in 1918. It is nestled in among a Christmas tree farm and offers spectacular views. In addition to the beautiful gardens accented with antique farm equipment, you will enjoy the large open yard (perfect for volleyball or croquet), the large shade trees, and the wrap-around porch. When is the last time you sat and watched the sun set?

Inside, you will feel right at home with the antique furnishings, a country eat-in kitchen, and a large dining room and living room. There is enough room and privacy for at least eight people to stay, even more for dinner! And, of course, we have added all the modern conveniences for your comfort.

Lovely House!

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy staying at The Bald Knob Farm House. The amount of charm and history in the house is overwhelming in the best way! The owners were sweet and made the house very welcoming (including some delicious apple butter). My group had a lot of fun on this trip and staying in this house!

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a most enjoyable stay at Bald Knob! Everything we needed was there or just down the road in Sparta. The temperatures made it perfect for the wrap around porch, we sat on them every evening watching the wildlife. Very peaceful and looking forward to coming back again soon!

A quiet stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and property. When you are there It is as if you are at home. Anything and everything you would need. Very well maintained. Very comfortable, to the outside porch, living room, kitchen and the beds! This property was easy to find. The owners are easy to work with and very accessible.

Our family has been with Homeaway and VRBO for years. Never really had an experience like this. fresh cut flowers. Coffee, filters, sugar, creamer. Salt, pepper, spices and a few condiments in the frig. This is a home not just any rental property this Is a family home that is loved. We enjoyed our stay.

Charming home with lots of character!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed New Years Eve/day in this wonderful farmhouse nestled about 30 minutes from Stone Mtn State Park on tight budget and time. This place had all of the amenities we could possibly need: stocked kitchen, privacy, comfort, washer/dryer. It was as if we stepped back in time a little, and to add.. the photos on the walls added a lot of character! The owners were very responsive and very kind. Would definitely stay here again!

Bald Knob Farm

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we got a warm welcome. The outside light was on, both fireplaces were burning and christmas music filled the air. There was a welcome note with a bowl of fruit and a jar of peach preserves on the table. This was like stepping back in time. Everything you need is provided. This home is very private, relaxing and serene. The owners stopped by the first day and you couldn't ask for a lovelier couple. They told us the history of the farm and about area attractions. Overall this is a beautiful place to stay and we look forward to going back.
